Get Outside and Enjoy the Tour De Chiang Mai
Chiang Mai, Thailand is the most picturesque city in Southeast Asia. For food lovers, finding chateaubriand there might be a challenge, but here’s a part of the itinerary you can try at home: Eat Like a Local in Northern Thailand with Will Fly for Food.
You will meet the chefs and their teams as they kick-off a variety of cooking classes, which you can experience at your own pace and price. If you’re interested in seeing Chiang Mai before you go, these tours start right on the beach – hopefully you’ll find a sunset overlooking the beautiful, sprawling Chiang Mai Bay.
Chiang Mai has 100+ beaches, near to a tourist magnet in the city, but you won’t find any crowds here; families wander the beaches, go for a walk or take a boat ride, or simply sip coconut water and eat at a beach-side restaurant.
Get to know the city’s culinary history from The Travel Center’s Executive Chef, Bradley Crouch, who will introduce you to dishes such as chicken and caribbean jerk chicken, grilled crab with herbed mayonnaise, beef curry with bok choy, garlic shrimp stew, and crispy pumpkin cake.
We’ll also include tasting stations to expand your palette, starting with an appetizer course which will leave you wanting more. Most of the chef’s samples are tapas-sized so that the 5 to 7-course menu is worth tasting.
If you can’t find this tour at your preferred hotel, budget choices in the area include the following options: The Bar & Kitchen at Montise at Chiang Mai’s Taj Hotel, the ambiance at Ko Ocean & Bar at the San Sukhothai Suvarnabhumi Airport, and the restaurants at Ma Thai Northern Thai Hotel & Spa & The Ritz-Carlton Chiang Mai.
If you’d like to buy a cooking class ticket in advance, pricing begins at 40,000 baht; a priority-picking ticket gets you in as soon as you check in. There are packages for an evening dining date which are much more affordable ($45), while packages to meet up with other guests on a group tour run $50 each.
